Hi, my name is Kimberly. I live in Arcadia, CA and I have eight years experience in the field.
How did you get into caregiving?
I became a caregiver because I took care of my mother growing up. She's bipolar and schizophrenic and I just really have a knack for it. I enjoy helping others and taking care of people.
What advice would you provide to a new caregiver?
My advice to a new caregiver would be to have patience and to earn trust.
Who is one of your most memorable clients?
A client I would never forget, her name is Vicky and she used to dress up every day. Every single day I would come to help care for her, I would get to dress her up and I couldn't get her back into her regular clothes so it was really an incredible thing.
